LOL, that guy's reaction to Episode 8: "This is becoming work for me now." I'm not sure Twin Peaks is for him. David Lynch in general is definitely not for him. I like Lindelof's compassionate reaction, though.

I guess the original Twin Peaks fan divide is being laid bare now. For example, the parts this guy loved from the original Twin Peaks I would probably consider less pure, even filler in many cases.

The beautiful and understandably frustrating thing about The Return is that it seems to be doing exactly what it wants to do, so you can't really quibble about the execution it's very much take it or leave it. New TP is not for everyone, and that's fine.

Looking back on The Return, it really brings to mind a lightning bolt. The way it branches off in dozens of different paths seeking the most efficient route to the ground before a single one finally finds it and all the other paths simply disappear.

I'm really looking forward to re-watching this series when I get the time. Though I had seen a few of his movies, I hadn't had any real interest in Lynch before I decided to binge on his stuff before watching this series. I started with the original Twin Peaks series and quickly got hooked, then followed it Fire Walk With Me, then his other features. I got to say, it was one of the most pleasurable cinematic excursions I've ever been on. My dreams had never been so vivid.

I'm still trying to make sense of the The Return, but I'm tending to think that the whole thing is really taking place in Coop's subconsciousness. I think this has been the case right off the bat from the beginning of the original series to a certain degree. At the center of it all we have something truly horrific taking place: the continued rape and ultimate murder of a daughter at the hands of her father. This is something that actually happens in the world. It's something that Coop encounters on a regular basis as an FBI agent. At a point he can no longer simply be the indifferent investigator and tries to cope with how such horrifically inexplicable things can happen and what we watch in Twin Peaks is the attempt by his subconsciousness to rationalize the utterly irrational. It conjures up this elaborate fantasy of the Black Lodge etc., as well as all the rest. For the most part, what we're watching throughout this series is the hamster wheel in Coop's mind trying to explain what is really not explainable, and along the way we see many other aspects of his subconsciousness that reveal other things about Coop. But everything has meaning.
